Description
In September 1790, following the death of his princely patron, court composer Joseph Haydn and his orchestra were sacked. But the cloistered composer received a visit from London-based German impresario Johann Peter Salomon, who made him a tempting offer: an opera, six symphonies, and 20 other pieces to be written in London, and a guaranteed income from a new concert series. The following January, Haydn arrived in England for the first of two visits that would leave indelible impressions on the musical life of Britain and on the composer himself. This charming little volume by the founder of the Academy of Ancient Music—with satin covers and black and white illustrations of art, musical figures, and ephemera—translates and transcribes Haydn's letters and notes, and accounts by his contemporaries, to bring the period vividly to life.
